After some time, I faced the fact that Dove is not what it used to be. I find it irritating and drying as well as pore clogging. This really bums me out, I had an emotional thing with Dove Beauty Bar.
Anyway, I found that I am fairly reactive to a lot of common things in cleansers. I can't handle cerave stuff, especially the lotion or cream. For me, nicinamide makes my skin very angry. I did some research and found out about a cleanser made by a company called Pharmaceutical Specialties, the makers of Vanicream. This cleanser is called "Free and Clear Liquid Cleanser" and here is the website info:
SENSITIVE SKIN FORMULA
- Dermatologist Recommended.
- Free of common chemical irritants found in ordinary cleansers such as:
– masking fragrance
– formaldehyde releasers
I've been using this cleanser for about two weeks. It does not irritate and it's not really drying. The pH is 5-5.8.
I need to find a moisturizer that doesn't clog my pores.
